Business opportunities for PV driven by Smart Homes

Identification of business cases related to the integration of photovoltaic energy into smart home solutions

The support schemes for renewable energies and energy efficiency combined with the fast technological progress in telecommunication and energy generation technology led to a paradigm shift towards more decentralized, integrated, smart energy solutions. Energy and electricity generation are directly linked with energy consumption by an ´internet of energy´ and smart grids. This allowed for very efficient generation and use of energy. In this context, the Business Consulting team prepared a study for a large international electronics company with the objective to analyze potential business models that could emerge from the integration of PV plants into smart homes in the residential sector.
